THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAI-WEDNESDAY EVENING, JULY 17 1907.
i FOUR IN A ROW. Topeka Takes, the Final. Game From Wichita. " Ilalla's Masterly Pitching ', ' . Much for Jobbers.. Too ONLY OJiE SCORE MADE This the White Sox Garnered by ',' Bunching Hits. , Brilliant Fielding by Olson and - Runkle. 5Big Jack Halla pitching: for Topeka Tuesday afternoon was entirely too bis a burden lor the Wichita fans to sustain and they went down to defeat for th; fourth time , In the present series and paid their respects for the second time In -three days to the delivery of Jack Halla. Everything one could desire in the way of pitching was pulled oft by Halla. His game was almost a no hit one, as both of his hits were of an ex ceedingly scratchy order. One from Bpeer landed Just outside of the reach of Colonel Runkel and the other came In the ninth Inning after two men were out. Milan hit one at Halla in the ninth after two strikes had been called and another had been called a ball which was very close. Milan's hit went to Halla. and bounded off his mit.- Halla was aa steady as a twenty-three jeweled Elgin movement, not one single piece ui transportation being issued to the vis itors. It was the best game that the big Dutchman has ever pitched on th5 local diamond and !s probably his great est performance. Outside of the two scratchy connec tions with Halla's delivery but one mar. reached first. This was In the seventh Inning whene Steve Ragan made a wide throw to first to catch Hetling. This was the only error of the game and did not cost anything as Hetling was exe cuted 1n a futile effort to get to second. Wichita has not had a man on second base sinca Sunday which is now ancient Forhe invading cohorts of the Sedg wick county seat. Speer. the little curly headed southpaw, worked in the center of the diamond before the Ladies' Day crowd and pitched an ordinarily good game. Had it not been for the fact that his team mates were helpless before the deceptive offerings of Halla. his pitch ing would probably have won. He only allowed five connections to be made with his sidewheel revolutions and in addition fanned eight men. But luck was against him In one inning and To peka sneaked a run over which decided the game. Something seems to be ailing the Wichita team. They have lost their batting eye and -their daubers have been, subdued to a position 273 de grees below zero, centigrade. If they would be up against Topeka all the time their dreams of winning the pen nant would fade away in a halo of jiebulbus nothing and they would be occupying a ' position. In. close proxi pilty to Leavenworth. f In onlv one Inning were there any tflforts towards .crossing the pan which are worthy, oT being recorded tn these pages. All- tpis transpired in the fourth inning .with Topeka at the bat. . Little Ole -Olson.-was the leading gentleman in breaking the ice. Being the first man up tn .this round he uti lized the occasion to advantage by lac ing out a pretty double to left field. Spencerino Abbott very courteously fanned out. but the third strike grace fully glided through the slender foun dation pillars of Buck Weaver without an iota of resistance and Mr. Abbott reached first. Olson gomg to third. Ragan was up to play the role of a pinch hitter, but a grounder to Hetling caught Olson at the plate and allowed Abbott to go to second, Ragan reach ing first. Colonel Louis Runkel of Milwaukee, proved his adeptness at hitting in a pinch by singling to cen ter field bringing Spencerino home with the winning count of the game. Ragan reached third on the single and toon thereafter Runkel assumed life on second base by an unopposed steal. Lawler was at the bat with ' instruc tions for the squeeze play which To peka fans see very frequently. After two -trikes had been called Ragan darted for the home plate. Lawler struck at the ball and Ragan was caught at the plate. It was all over. Halla was backed up by brilliant fielding and pulled on" several rich stunts himself. Olson and Runkel covered lots of territory and pulled oft repeated and ceminglv impossible plays. For the visitors Kelly's running catch of Run ' kel's fly over second base was the bright particular piece of fielding. Milan also played a great game.

There ia no otherpart of our physical system upon which so much depends as upon the blood. The muscles, nerves, bones, sinews, skin, and other portions of the body are sustained, developed and enabled to perform their different duties, because they are supplied with nourishment and healthful properties through the circulation. In various ways the blood becomes contaminated and polluted. A sluggish, inactive condition of the system, and torpid state of the avenues of bodily waste, will leave the refuse and waste matter of the body to sour and form uric and other acids, which are absorbed into the blood and Rheumatism, or some itching, disfiguring akin disease is the result. Muddy, sallow-complexions, eruptions, splotches pimples, etc., all show that some humor has taken root in the circulation and rendered it sour and unfit for nourishing the body. There is scarcely any disease which cannot be traced to the blood. Often the disease-tainted blood of parents is handed down to children and their lives are a continual battle against disease in some form, usually of a scrofulous nature. Rheu matism, Catarrh, Skin Diseases, Sores and Ulcers, Contagious Blood Poison, etc., are all deep-seated blood troubles, and until this vital fluid is purified they cannot be cured." For all blood diseases S. S. S. is the best remedy ever put upon the market. This great medicine is made of roots, herbs and barks of recognized blood-purifying and building-up properties. It goes down into the circulation and removes all poisons, impurities and humors, supplies the blood with the healthful properties it needs and completely cures blood Jiseases of every kind. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula, Skin Diseases, Sores and Ulcers, Contagious Blood Poison, etc because it fsrifies the blood. Book on the blood and medical advice free.

Is it to be a walkover tonight, when the colored heavyweight fighter. Jack Johnson meets Bob Fitzsimmons. one - time champion of the world, or can the old lion come back strong enough -to stall off the man whom, all the big fellows of the country have been dodging for mrea years ; Robert Fltzsinunons. the - Grand Old Man.

The strangely assorted pair are due to light tonight ' here, and one of the biggest' .crowd? 1that has . attended a light In- this city fp. years is promised by the advanc&fe of "seats for the 6 round bout." -- "i. Knowing ' that Fltxsimmons has been unable to show any form for three years, most" followers of the ring believe they are merely paying a com pliment to the one, time great fighter when they unbelt and pay a big price for the show. It is a foregone - con clusons, say those who. know Fit well, that he can not get back into fighting condition and any showing that ha makes tonight is expected to be more or less of a gratuitous nature on the part of Johnson. The big negro. Is aa strong and healthy as ever. rAt best he is a for midable fighting machine and but for a "white man's" verdict he would have earned a decision over Marvin Hart, who was then champion of the world, when they met at Frisco. All stories of that contest agree that the coiorea scrapper chewed up his white opponent and that the verdict was a gift of the referee. . Had Johnson been awarded the title It would have forced Burns and all the others of his Ilk Schreck and that sort to come to Johnson for a chance at the title. Johnson, if he puts Fitz away, is supposed to be offered a chance at the cnampion, Burns. Whether he will get it or not depends entirely on how badly Burns a In need of either a winner's or loser's end of a big purse. SQUIRES IN RETIREMENT. Manager Is to Go Home, But Boxer Will Remain In America. San Francisco, July 17. All chance of an immediate fight for "Boshter" Bill Squires, in which the Australian would have a chance to redeem his reputation, Is evidently gone. . Barney Reynolds, his friend and companion, announces that Squires will not fight again for several months. Reynolds win leave for Australia soon. but Squires will remain in California and go into seclusion in the country. Squires has had some good offers. Coff roth offered to get a match with Mike Schreck, to take place in San Francl3co. Tom McCarey wanted to sign Tom Flynn and Squires for Los Angeles and Philadelphia promoters suggested a six round engagement with Burns. Squlri3 cays he wishes to. .acclimatize himself.

WHERE THET PLAT TOMORROW: Topeka at Webb City. , : , Joplin at Hutchinson. . Oklahoma City at Leavenworth. Wichita at Springfield. The White Sox left last night for Webb City where they will play a ser ies of three games. From there they will go to Springfield for' four games and probably five will be played with a double header on Sunday. Three games will be played in Joplin and the Joplin team will return home with the Topeka team July 27 which will be a week from Saturday. Peewee Jones did not accompany the team on their trip last night.- His in jury still bothers him but will be all right in a day or two. He could work now in a pinch but a little move faster than the ordinary which he might have to make in fielding his position might put him on the bum and he will take no chances with it. The games on the present schedule are with the weaker teams of the league and it is doubtful if he will play on the trip. Woolp'y did not Join the team in Kan sas City, last night as expected. He wanted to stay in' Leavenworth until tomorrow. Davis went right on through with the team 'to Webb City and will play .until Wooley Joins the team. Her man Crow will go to Leavenworth Thursday and will- endeavor to make a dal with President Rohr which will re- pult in the outright, purcnase or Wooley. Wooley will not jin the team, until Crow has a conference with Rohr. In the meantime Davis will play with th. White Sox and if Wooley is purchased outright he will continue with the locals. Umpire O'Connell who has been work ing in the series just closed seems to be a good man with the indicator. .Both teams- are well pleased with the showing he has made. . O'Connell is an old ball player and knows a great deal about the game' which is- in his favor.

A majority of those who attended the game ex press the same opinion. Despite the fact that -Eckrnan has participated in a number of fights with players he Is recognized as one of the best and fair est umpires . in the Western Association. Whether he was wrong or right in his decisions yesterday was not for people in the audience to take up. Bad de cisions should be taken up by the cap tains of the teams and the captains alone. There was absolutely no excuse for the assault upon Eckman yester day. The latter claims Quigley called him a very bad name and says he benched him on that account. During all the excitement Eckman seemed pei fectly cool and apparently did net fear the mob. Jack Holland says that the Wichita team had a great slump in their bat ting during the series Just closed. In reply to the reason for the slump he said that the fielding of Olson was al together too much for the left handed hitters- of the Jabbers and that nearly every one of Olson assists represented one hit less for Wichita. Holland says if any man in the association at the present time Is due for faster company next season It is Olson.

The big slabman is in bad shape. For the present this condition leaves Leav enworth with three pitchers, Gilbert, Hollingsworth and Bakule. Bakule is inexperienced and cannot be worked steadily like the other men, so that -until Selby is out again, the locals are in hard lines for pitchers. Middleton might be taken in from the outfield and worked into condition, but the change will not be made until necessary. Gov ereau, who Is still on the list, might bo substituted in the garden.-Leaven-worth Times. Furey, who might have had a try out last Friday if . he had reached To peka was lambasted for twelve hits in a game at Leonardville, Kan., last Sunday. Fainter the Webb City infielder, who was injured when the Ugly Duck lings were in Topeka a few weeks ago, has just rejoined the team and is play ing at second base. The Webb City team- will have a good infield when Olson can get back at third and Oyler recovers from his illness and resumes his old position at Ehort.

Topeka Morning Lick spittle. Why this pessimism? Wich ita has no more cinch on first place than Oklahoma City has on second place. With the season only half over, it would be the easiest thing in the world for the Jobbers to slump. Should they lose only six straight games and should the Mets take seven straight, these two teams would be tied up, and with Wichita losing steadily to To peka, it does not seem out of reason to predict the possibility of some other aggregation assuming the lead. The Dalrymple deal is still far from being settled. When the news of the suspension of the veteran first reached Topeka, Manager Herman Crow wired to Dubuque for their terms, tending towards a settlement of the case, and so far nothing has been heard from Dubuque. Something is wrong somewhere. Until Dubuque makes their proposition to the local management, Dalrymple must con tinue on the bench. Manager Herman Crow did not ac company the team last night, but will spend the time between now and the next home series at Excelsior Springs. He will take a run up to Leavenworth Thursday to talk with Al Rohr in re gard to the Wooley deal. He will also take in the series of games at Kansas City which open today between the Louisville Colonels' and the Kansas City Blue Legs. Peggy Robblns, secre tary of the local team, accompanied the team on the trip. He will have charge 'of the business end of the trip. The Goodland, Kansas, amateur or semiprofessional team passed through Topeka yesterday. Asa Slater, who pitched for the Cooleycrows before the season began, is with the team and is playing first sack. Cleo Kemp ton, a local amateur. Joined the team and' will travel with them on a tour through Illinois and Iowa. Gilbert, the pitcher who has been expected to Join the team for several days arrived yesterday and worked out 'in the practice. He would prob ably have pitched had it not been for the fact that Halla was very anxious to work against the Jobbers in order to make it four straight. Gilbert will probably work in the opener against Webb City this afternoon. Here is what Jack Holland, the manager of the Wichita team which was defeated four straight games by the champions, has to say of the series: "I have no excuse to offer ex cept that we were outplayed. Topeka always could play ball agalrfst us and they certainly did it thia series. Wo never had a chance at any game ex cept the first one which we - would have won-had not Speer been so wild at critical times. We were fairly and squarely defeated and that is all that I have to say. We have had a slump end it has been the worst one of the season. We have slumped particu larly in our-batting. . Milan, Becker. Bayles3, Hetling and myself have been hitllnggood all season until we struck Topeka. We haven't hit a lick here. If we don't get back to work we will lose out in the pennant as I can see that there is a good long road between us and the rag. There is absolutely nothing responsible for our defeat ex cept our slump in batting. The soonet we get over it the better." - Doctor Jamea Albert Berry.
